Hello, YouTube!

So here we are starting the 2nd week of the new year! I hope all of you are taking strides in achieving your goals for 2013 :-)

One of my blog goals for this year was to start uploading videos on my YouTube Channel. Well, I uploded my first video this weekend and I am SUPER EXCITED for you all to see! Of course I love thrifting so it was only right that my first post be a thrifting haul.

I’ve decided to set aside a certain amount of money each month for thrifting. This month, I did not have an amount set but I still wanted to share my finds. From here on out when I do a haul, I will include how much I plan(ned) to spend, my receipts and the links to the stores I shopped at (if they’re available). Setting aside a certain amount for thrfiting is something I plan to include in my budget for 2013 because let’s be honest; thrifting is GREAT but it can become just as expensive as shopping at regular stores if you do it so often. So in 2013, you can be sure to see at least 1 thrift haul a month on my channel and maybe a 2nd video geared towards an outfit or something else. I haven’t decided yet but I’ll figure it out.

Below is the video so be sure to watch and subscribe HERE! If you have ideas on ways I can improve my videos, let me know. I’m always open to (kind & constructive) suggestions. Thanks to all those who’ve already watched the video. As usual, I appreciate the support.

Enjoy and be blessed! XO :-)

Thanksgiving Recap

Hey, friends! I hope you had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving. I sure did enjoy mine. I ate, laughed, played a few games with the fam and did some Black Friday Shopping. This was my 1st year “participating” in the Black Friday madness My mother and I went to Macy’s and got a few goodies. Nothing major.

I also spent some time with my little sis. She is so creative and she decided to do a DIY project she saw on television show, The Chew. Part I and II of the videos are below, as well as on my YouTube channel (HERE). I really love this idea. It’s super easy and really cute. It reminds me of something Amberly from A Slice of Glam would do ;-)

Check out the pics and the videos below. Also, don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel, HERE. I’m going to start posting some videos that have to do with DIY, thrifting and more! My sister will be making appearances as well so be sure to subscribe so you can keep up!

Until tomorrow, take care and be blessed!
